Atlanta Falcons Color Analyst Dave Archer joined Dukes and Bell to talk about the Atlanta Falcons at Green Bay Packers game this weekend. Archer on playing at Lambeau Field, “You can hear the ghosts when you go onto the field, one of the best places to play in the National Football League.”

Archer on the key to winning this game for the Falcons, “They have to play well in the trenches and get a hat on a hat. The run game is going to be paramount in this one.”

Archer on sustaining drives in this game, “Well first off you have to get drives going. You have a bunch of players from the south heading up to Lambeau so it will interesting to see how the react to the cold."

Archer on the impact of Mike McCarthy being fired, “Teams in these situations continue to grind on what their doing but Aaron Rodgers is the focal point of this whole situation. I expect a more dialed in Green Bay.”

Archer when on to say that this will be a DB (defensive back) game for Atlanta. Rodgers is going to throw a lot of back shoulder throws and the secondary will have to play well to get the win in this one.

Archer when asked about if Devonta Freeman will return this year, “If it’s the last game of the year I don’t want to see him. I think that puts him in a bad situation.”
